Israel boycott ban: Local councils face legal action at High Court over boycott on Israeli goods made in West Bank

Local councils are facing legal action at the High Court today over their decisions to impose boycotts on Israeli goods produced in “illegal” Israeli settlements in the West Bank.

Jewish Human Rights Watch (JHRW) is seeking judicial review against three authorities – Leicester City Council, Swansea City Council and Gwynedd Council.

The campaign group is expected to ask Lord Justice Simon and Mr Justice Flaux, sitting in London, to rule the “anti-Semitic” boycotts unlawful because they breach the Local Government Act 1988 and the Equality Act 2010.

The rot runs far more deep than the Labour Party in the UK, it has insinuated itself in public institutions.

      • Soda Stream is Israeli and President’s Choice puts out those wonderful little Israeli mandarins.
